We're excited to announce another get-back-out-there feature. If you've been looking for a way to meet other OlderGay members near you, you can now schedule a meetup to get everyone together.

Pick a place and a time, and we'll notify everyone nearby in the newsletter. If you don't have a location in mind, you can head to our Places section. When you see a place that seems amenable, you'll find a "Schedule a meetup here!" link on its page that will pre-fill the name and address of the venue. When you click through, you'll also find a somewhat tedious list of suggestions to help make your event the best it can be.

We hope this will break the ice for members close to each other who haven't yet met. We hope it will be good for travelers, too! Imagine if, on your first visit to London or Palm Springs or Rio de Janeiro, you could have dinner or drinks with like-minded friends who help you settle in. Years of running this site have convinced me that we're everywhere. I hope this is another step to connect us to each other.

Enjoy, and have a great time,
